Last week I showed you my first batch of cake pops, leopard print ones. I really loved how they looked and tasted and wanted to make more.
I have been recently working on a birthday cake and I had some fruit cake left over so I thought rather than waste the bits I didn't use I would make them into fruit cake pops. I went for chocolate buttercream as the binding element and have coloured and themed them to match the birthday cake.
If you don't have time to make a fruit cake you can always use a shop bought one! These are the second batch of cake pops I have made and I definitely need to keep practicing the coating part! It can be tricky to get nice and smooth. However, my plan of letting the cake pops with inserted stocks rest in the fridge before coating the cake in candy has stopped the cake pops from spinning on their sticks.
